A lifesaver of a podcast

I have listened to you on beaches, and while hiking and in public transport and while driving, and in bed, and in many different countries. I am a huge fan. I’d love to hear Anna Hope talking to this book club about her latest novel EXPECTATION, which is absolutely brilliant. Best regards. Olja

Frustrating

Love delving into my favourite novels in this way but get so frustrated at how James Naughtie can’t help but interject and talk over audience members and even the authors themselves!! 😡

Absolutely great!

A monthly podcast of interviews with writers from the world of fiction writing. The earlier podcasts have the archived interviews. The set up is simple, a pre-selected writer is interviewed on their book and how they came to make it. Readers are invited to attend the interview, online users may submit questions for the next interview. The interviews are about 30 minutes long and thoroughly insightful on the dealings of how a book came alive for the writers.
If you like the writers interviewed and want to know something more interesting than what Wikipedia can throw at you then listen to these podcasts and revel at what you hear.
